Since you are taking "general purpose", here is a little routine that handles a commonly appearing problem now-a-days, where your encoding can't handle special (but legal) characters in filenames. It won't affect anything, if the filenames are normal ascii, but will fix them, so Perl can find them from the filesystem, if there is a unicode character in them. I was shown this, when I had a problem opening files with Perl, which had names like Claude Gellée , where the funny é is actually an acented e. See Re: problems with extended ascii characters in filenames
#this decode utf8 routine is used so filenames with extended # ascii characters (unicode) in filenames, will work properly use Encode; opendir my $dh, $path or warn "Error: $!"; my @files = grep !/^\.\.?$/, readdir $dh; closedir $dh; # @files = map{ "$path/".$_ } sort @files; #$_ = decode( 'utf8', $_ ) for ( @files ); @files = map { decode( 'utf8', "$path/".$_ ) } sort @files;

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
